The Hague | Monday, Apr 16 2018 IST
 
Britain's ambassador to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said on Monday that Russian assertions about why a team of inspectors had so far been unable to reach Douma, Syria were incorrect.

Russian officials have said that the inspectors were unable to reach Douma because they had not been cleared by the United Nations and because of U.S.-led strikes carried out on targets in Syria on Saturday prevented them.

But Ambassador Peter Wilson said at a news conference in The Hague that the United Nations had cleared the inspectors to go, and they had been unable to reach Douma because Syria and Russia had been unable to guarantee their safety.
